Terrell Owen performs a good deed

Despite the noise coming out of Philadelphia condemning Terrell Owens (TO) it should be noted that he performed a valuable public service this week. His actions have made Rickie Williams seem like a good teammate. And that's not easy.

TO and Randy Moss are arguably two of the top five receivers in the NFL. However, both of them can be self-destructive jerks. Minnesota decided during the off season to rid themselves of their extremely talented but uncontrollable star. They traded him to the Oakland Raiders for a player and a first round draft pick. As a result the Vikings may actually be a better team despite the loss of a great player. Philadelphia is in the position where they may be taking a major step back because they didn't take earlier action with their nutty wide receiver.

Bill, No pity here they knew what they were getting when they traded for him last year.

Bob,

I wasn't pitying them, I was laughing at them. I'm also wondering if we could rip them off in a trade. I don't want Owens but the Browns might be able to get them to overpay for Davis or Northcutt. Maybe a 2nd and 4th round pick for a WR?

Bill, I think we would be lucky to get just a 2 for either of them. I'd rather trade Northcutt of the two.

Depends on how desperate they get. In addition to Owens BS, they are dealing with injuries to other receivers. The Eagles have gotten close the last 4 years and may see their window of opportunity closing.
